OneShift shifts into gear with Havas Media

Havas Media has landed the media account of recruitment site OneShift following a three-way pitch.

Ben Sjogren, general manager of Havas Media, will lead the OneShift business for the media agency.

The appointment comes after OneShift named Whybin/TBWA Sydney its creative partner.

Simon Porter, OneShift marketing director, said with Havas, Whybin/TBWA and Click PR, the business now has “marketing firepower” to help OneShift “explode” in 2014.

Porter added: "We liked Havas Media's original thinking, and creative approach to our communications challenges. But what really sold them to us, was their like-mindedness. They’re a relatively new player here in Australia, and determined to shake things up. Like us, they’re hungry and eager to drive the business forward and make waves. We can't wait to get cracking with them.”

Havas Media’s chief executive Mike Wilson said: “Like OneShift, we're a new market entrant, and we want to shake up the status quo. Also like OneShift, we think the traditional approaches are unsuited to the modern landscape, and we intend to be a change agent for our clients.”
